Periodontal therapy can help with peri-implantitis or gum inflammation
Gingivitis leading to periodontitis, is a condition that presents as inflammation. It affects the tissues (gums) surrounding and supporting teeth.
One easily recognisable and common sign of inflamed gums is bleeding that occurs when brushing.
While gum inflammation or periodontitis can be uncomfortable, when identified early enough, it can be treated with scaling procedures. Untreated, periodontitis can eventually cause a loss of bone around the teeth, causing them to loosen and become sore.
If your dentist recommends treatment, the approach taken will depend on how far advanced your condition is, something which is determined at our comprehensive oral health assessment. During this consult, your dentist will mechanically remove the bacterial load on gums, giving them the opportunity to heal.
Want to avoid gum disease or the need for periodontal therapy? The power is in your hands because prevention is the secret.
Follow a regimen of preventative maintenance, including correct brushing, regular flossing and a visit to your dentist every six months. That way you’ll give yourself the best chance of keeping gum disease at bay and avoid the need for periodontal therapy down the track.
Wisdom tooth extraction
Did you know failing to monitor your wisdom teeth can lead to all kinds of oral health problems, including pain, swelling, bad breath, gum disease, infection, and decay in adjacent teeth?
This is why checking wisdom teeth is part of any preventative care visit at The Dental Boutique. Your dentist will examine the position and health of your wisdom teeth in the context of your overall oral health.
Depending on various factors – teeth size relative to jaw size, whether the teeth emerge from the jaw crooked, or if they are impacted and don’t come down through the gum – your dentist will recommend the appropriate treatment pathway. Treatment may include wisdom teeth extraction. In some cases, extracting wisdom teeth is the healthiest and best option.
